Junior Parametric Designer

In these years, we are constantly reminded of two things by the deluge of data. On one hand, of the urgency for all to awaken to this reality and start protecting our natural world. On the other hand, we are bombarded with the inevitable “omnipresence” of change; in fact digital information technology is developing at the speed of light. In this context, my focus is on creating value in this time of change, focusing on an ecological, digital, innovative and non-linear way of thinking, developing buildings which shape is originated by the complex relation that exists between digital architecture and the real environment.

Rodrigo M.

Junior Architect

Crazy in love with creativity and good ideas; Working hard to help those ideas become true. From my point of view, architecture is about the way we experience places. It´s about the context in which our lives develop. As an architect, I like experimenting with concepts, mixing, twisting and simplifying them. Connecting the dots towards a final simple solution. Always trying to identify the major threats of the assignment to turn them into the greatest features of the project. In conjunction with design, I find in painting my passion, a world where I can feel, discover and express myself.


Junior Interior Architect

I’m always fascinated by how people behave differently in different spaces and how we experience the world through our senses. The time we spend inside a space needs to properly fit the human needs and the desires at that specific moment. This means creating strong concepts for adaptive environments. Interior spaces should feel comfortable and make sense for the people who live in them.


Assistant Designer

Architects use all kinds of components, such as the context, the user, aesthetics and emotion to tell a story. My educational background illustrates my values during a design process. My bachelor at the art academy provided me all the freedom to develop concepts, to think ‘out of the box’ and be creative. My master degree at the technical university exposed the more practical and technical side; how to actually build the design. I like to combine both expertises and challenge myself to develop and translate the concept to the smallest details in the design. The ability to tell a story and thereby inspire people is what I love to do every day.



In a time of extreme fast developments, increasing mobility and digitalized communication, people are looking for places to slow down. Places which connect you to the time and location of the moment, where the local character and atmosphere can be experienced. Places where people connect and get out of their daily rush and habits. I believe with architecture we can provide people these places. Finding the trigger to connect people with their environment is my focus.


Concept developer

I kinda like it here.



Suprising people, asking the unconvenient questions, being the catalyst in design processes is my daily business. Creating concepts for places, so shared interests and ambitions are strenghtning eachother. My background and education in creative project development makes me a tourist in the architectural world. It enables me to think from a new role to create concepts which are truly integral. Rediscover the traditions of architects. Starting in my younger years family and friends encouraged me to exploit my sketching abilities. In my current role as concept developer, I use it to map and structure clients and users minds. A small sketch says more then thousand words.


Finance / HR / Management Assistant

When I started working at APTO it was my job to create order in the creative chaos: enable people to do their work. Nowadays I focus on the financial and HR part of APTO, but also still support the management in every possible way. The enthusiasm for new ideas by my colleagues and their dedication to realize them, motivates me to keep innovating our office and work systems.



Architecture is never a goal by it self. It plays a social and represents the goals of the clients we are helping. It is my ambition to always strife for the higher goals where it's business, environmental or social.

The opportunity to learn is a great privilege. It is also an obligation if you truly want to exploit your potential. In APTO learning is one of the most important elements in the process of designing. From doing research about a project location, through finding new materials and ecological solutions till brainstorming with our team - we learn, we explore, we look and we find. Constant exchange of ideas in our melting pot of different cultures, backgrounds and education systems creates a perfect environment for personal development and that is why I go to APTO every day.

Pulido Garzon

Technical Designer

What role does a corner play in the human condition? We have to design in a way that every corner of a building can be a particular place, a small space where the user likes to rejoice, relax, rest, live and above all to, it is a place that allows us to be ourselves. A place for imagination, to order our thoughts, to project our life, It is a intimacy space, just to define…who I am? And who do I want to be? In any context, spaces to share, to be creative and happy. Always centered in the human experience.
